Great arena, I've been here for different shows and it's always a great experience. Disney on ice, the heats, concerts..prices are fair depending on the event but worth visiting

I attended the Billy Joel concert in January, and while the show was amazing, the arena itself is quite tight, and takes a while to enter and exit. There were also few food venues open.

If you want to see a match park your car not at the stadium, because you pay a lot and the waiting line to get out after the match is at least one hour.. everywhere in the neighborhood is valet parking for around the 10$ and walking distance from the Arena.. Also if you don't want to spend to much... More

Just few miles south of where I'm staying is the home of my favorite NBA basketball team in the world. Just being outside the arena is already an additional treat for a tourist like me. Imagine seeing some of the biggest cruise ships in the world. And entering the arena is not really, really that impressive but the one that... More

beautiful Arena, we were there to watch Miami Heat basketball game and we are very enthusiastic about it. Clean, very well organised, great security (fast and accurate). parking is a bit difficult, just need to walk few blocks away from it. We will go back for sure!

I have been at the AA Arena many times, as a fan and at work in venues. I specialized in the Latin Music Industry and annually we have many awards and concert in the Arena. I know the arena inside out. Parking is always a problem, but there is so many parking lots with a flat fee around the arena... More

I like this arena a lot but in all fairness to the review I have not been to many arenas. I have how ever been to this arena quite a few times in many different capacities for example I recently was at Disney on Ice which was a great show, I also have seen High School Musical on ice another...

Very comfortable place. Drinks are expensive. Try to go in an uber, parking is complicated. Good acoustic.

Re: HELP Madonna Rebel Heart Tour Jan 2016

I was wondering about a couple of AAA policies, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would like to hear about policies from anyone who has been to this venue or from staff members as I repeatedly call and cannot reach anyone.

1) Does anyone know if the NFL clear bag policy is enforced at AAA Miami or is it okay to bring a regular bag/purse that doesn't necessarily have to be clear. Decent size of course, nothing enormous. And does security thoroughly check these bags and take forever holding up the lines or are they pretty cool about it and just do a quick once over?

2) Also for a concert, are non-obtrusive (non-offensive, of course) signs allowed in the arena? Both regular poster signs, and poster signs with LED battery-operated lights? These wouldn't be held up throughout the entire concert naturally, just at intervals when there is appropriate entertainer-fan interaction. We are in the front row of floor seating section at the end stage of a catwalk - so would be able to hold them at mid level while still getting noticed without needing to hold them above your heads and obstruct anyone else's line of vision.

3) Does anyone know if there are barriers that separate the stage from the floor sections and the floor sections from each other? Our section is Floor Section number 5, Row A and it seems to intersect with Floor sections 4 and 6 - which confuses me. I don't want to think that I have been scammed into buying a front row ticket when I've really bought a 20th row ticket that has just been given it's own section for whatever reason - especially if this section is barricaded. Also, if anyone has had floor seats to Rebel Heart - are there guardrails between the stage and the sections or does the double-layered stage act as it's own barrier? It's kind of hard to tell. In most of the videos, it looks like everyone surround the catwalk and heart stage areas are close enough to reach out and grab her if she lets them, which she sometimes does... but this seating chart is different that most of the other concert venues so I'm a little concerned. Please help lol.

As an aside, we went to this same concert in Atlantic City and the security was very easy going and accommodating, which saved a TON of time for us (and everyone else). We were allowed to bring in our own un-regulated bags with no issues and they had no problems with any of our concert signs. I'm hoping AAA is as cool a venue as Boardwalk Hall in regards to these kind of policies and treating their guests as fans and not terrorists. If someone could assure me of this, as I cannot reach the venue directly for their own assurances, I would be forever indebted to you as we are traveling from the NY area just for this event and want everything to go as smoothly as possible by being prepared down to the last detail!
